Roseanne Barr News on Roseanne Barr Natalie Portman

Roseanne has criticized Natalie Portman and defended Kevin Hart ahead of her visit to Israel. Natalie Portman outraged many people April 2018 after she declined to take part in an award ceremony as the recipient of the Genesis Prize Laureate, explaining she “did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony.”

Roseanne referred her as repulsive saying, “It was really sickening, I find her repulsive. She was raised in the incredible privilege of safety in the Jewish state and knows nothing about anti-Semitism.”
Roseanne also added, “She’s the darling of the left here, the Jewish left in Hollywood, she is a complete hypocrite who grew up in safety and privilege, like I said before, and knows nothing about what she speaks of.”
